Kantata Ignites Revenue Growth for Professional Services Organizations

UPDATEDMay 08, 2024

IRVINE, Calif., and LONDON – May 9, 2024 Amid a rapidly evolving professional services landscape, Kantata, a leading global supplier of purpose-built technology for professional services, delivers a proven track record of exceeding customer expectations, providing substantial advancements and showcasing its deep expertise and comprehensive industry knowledge.

During the 2023 global downturn that saw a 25% drop in Professional Services (PS) revenue sector-wide, Kantata’s customers have not just survived; they have thrived, significantly outperforming their peers, per the Professional Services Maturity™ Benchmark, 2024 by research firm, Service Performance Insight (SPI). Notably, Kantata supports 41.7% of the high-performing organizations in the benchmark.

According to a recent report looking at technology trends in the PS industry by Chris Marsh, Research Director and Rosanna Jimenez, Associate Research Analyst at S&P Global Market Intelligence, “High-performing PS teams want technologies that allow them to make data-driven decisions, with the integrated information, visibility and process maturity to ensure they can align with other internal stakeholders and with customers across the project life cycle. It’s not simply about project management; it’s quote-to-cash financial management and granular resource management capabilities, including the ability to forecast resource needs and plan for capacity at both the individual project and portfolio levels.”

Forrester Consulting completed a commissioned Total Economic Impact™ (TEI) study for Kantata and Kantata partner, Salesforce, revealing that organizations that invest in the Kantata Professional Services Cloud improve billable utilization, enhance project margins, and increase profitability from better capacity planning. Overall, the framework reveals that professional services organizations (PSOs) experience benefits of $29.5 million against costs of $4.9 million over three years. 

“Kantata is dedicated to enhancing the operational efficiency of people-powered businesses, helping them scale quickly and achieve remarkable results for their clients and employees,” said Michael Speranza, CEO of Kantata. “Our solutions deliver unparalleled quantifiable value and ROI, resolving business challenges better than anyone else by providing immediate access to data that enables teams to make informed, swift decisions. We deeply understand the needs of the professional services industry and continuously transform insights from our community of over 300,000 users into innovative visions and solutions that address real-world problems for our customers.”
